"You are absolutely wrong. It is not the case. We are actually putting on more fights than we have ever put on and the sport is continuing to grow. Johny Hendricks just fought Robbie Lawler and the thing sold out with a massive gate down there and did very well on PPV. Quit reading the Internet. If you are going to ask me questions, ask questions that are true... stop asking stupid questions."
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has no shortage of superstars, according to promotion head cheese Dana White, who was forced to defend a perceived lack of big names on ESPN's "Highly Questionable." Host Dan La Batard insisted that UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks was not a star, despite the fact that he helped sell out the UFC 171 pay-per-view (PPV) event last month in Dallas, Texas, and "did well" on pay-per-view (PPV). "Bigg Rigg," it should be noted, is also sponsored by Reebok, which lends credibility to White's argument that he meets the "star" qualifications. Anyone disagree?
